For the third consecutive year, Baume & Mercier presented its novelties at the Watches & Wonders Exhibition. Besides the amazing Clifton 1830 Pocket Watch Five Minute Repeater that features a rare five-minute repeater complication, the Swiss manufacturer also unveiled the elegant Promesse Jade watch that boasts a jade bezel enhanced with 60 sparkling Top Wessellton diamonds. With this feminine newcomer, Baume & Mercier also celebrates its 185th anniversary.
In the ancient Asian tradition, Jade is regarded as a symbol of the good, love and lifetime commitment. It is more than a precious stone in Asia. In ancient times, this stone was given to newborn babies and newlyweds to bring them happiness and prosperity. In China’s ancient heritage, particularly Jade represents good fortune and the family lineage. Furthermore, this precious stone also symbolizes the female-erotic which makes the new Promesse Jade timepiece a perfect gift for the beloved one.
This gemstone comes in many fine nuances of green, and in this case, the unfurling green ribbon is set on the outer bezel and it nicely rounds the Promesse Jade’s dial with all its allure. Underneath the front sapphire glass lies a beautiful guilloché silver-colored dial which comprises Roman numerals set at the quarter hour and hour markers set with eight diamonds.
The Jade Promesse watch is housed in a round stainless steel case which measures 34mm in diameter and 8.1mm in thickness. The case is shielded with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.
The new Baume & Mercier watch is equipped with the high-quality Swiss quartz movement which offers the utmost precision and the highest reliability. The reverse side of the watch reveals the inscription “Limited Edition – One out of 8.”
A glossy white alligator strap completes the feminine look of this exquisite novelty from Baume & Mercier.
Baume & Mercier Promesse Jade watch will be produced in the ultra limited series of only 8 pieces which happens to be a lucky number in Asian culture.
The watch fair Watches & Wonders is Asia’s Haute Horlogerie Exhibition that is organized in Hong Kong. This year, from September 30 to October 3, some of the world’s leading watchmakers displayed their wares over four days of the exhibition which was held for the third time.
